COVID-19 Update

Dear Neighbor,

In order to support your families being able to take a deep breath, turn away from constant news updates, and create a new temporary normal, my office will continue posting a near-daily update on the COVID-19 public health emergency to our website and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

It is my hope that one reliable update each day will allow you to take a deep breath, oversee all that is happening in your own life and home, and have a reliable source of news you can count on to be up to date and accurate. As always, previous updates are on our website and linked beneath the graphic below. 

My greatest concerns right now are your lives and livelihoods. We are working hard to keep you and your loved ones safe, and to fight for our small businesses in an unprecedented crisis. 

In solidarity,

Rep. Robyn Vining

 Emergency Order to Address Healthcare Staffing Needs

Today, Governor Evers and Wisconsin Department of Health Service Secretary-designee Andrea Palm issued an emergency order to help address healthcare staffing needs in response to the current surge in cases and the growing strain on Wisconsin’s healthcare system.

This order provides for temporary interstate license reciprocity for healthcare providers to work in Wisconsin healthcare facilities, extends licenses that may expire during the federal emergency declaration for 30 days after its conclusion, and makes it easier for healthcare providers with a recently lapsed license to apply for a reinstatement with the Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS). Out-of-state physicians can also practice telemedicine in Wisconsin with proper notification of DSPS.

The order is effective immediately and will remain in effect for the duration of the current declared federal public health emergency and renewals or until a superseding order is issued by Gov. Evers or Secretary-designee Palm.

Read the full announcement HERE and the full order HERE.

Important Federal Economic Impact Payment Update 

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue has shared information regarding Wisconsin residents who did not file taxes that may still be eligible for a federal COVID-19 Economic Impact Payment. The application deadline is October 15. More information can be found HERE.
